Show stock and packed bags

I have been working like a crazy fool trying to get as much done before I leave for a trip to Connecticut and Massachusetts for 10 days. I do not know what I was thinking when I extended my trip from 5 days to 10 days, especially at this time of year, since I am in show mode. I know when I see my sister at the airport all the anxiety about work will  leave, and knowing I will enjoy some yummy lobster while I am visiting helps too! My hubby will be joining me later in the week so we can attend the wedding of a good friend.

 me and my sister Susan

Here are a few things I have been working on.

 I love this great hand component from Micheal's. Paired with chunky Opalite, peace resin pendant, etched copper tag "Inspire" and sterling wire wrapped copper bead.

When I look at this piece I think of all the blessings in my life and realize how blessed I am and how lucky I am to have the most fantabulous husband and son. To live my life freely and joyfully without restraints, something that is taken for granted by so many. I am truly blessed with family and friends, health and purring kitties and the ability to create what I want when I want. 

 I bet you can't guess what the platform for this pendant is? I repurposed something and it is vintage.

My attempt at something a bit "goth"..
Resin pendant created from vintage dictionary illustration, Czech glass beads and brass and black chain. 

 I hope you all have a blessed week!
